dh is sick (again)
He may or may not feel like eating. We have 2 different kinds of potato soup in the fridge (potato leek and potato brocolli cheddar) so we will pick and choose.

I felt like experimenting today. So, I just played around with a couple random things in my kitchen.

I came up with "Santa Fe Crab in vodka cream sauce". it was surprisingly delicious. I think I'll try to recreate it again, tomorrow.

We found this Mia de Toscan brand pizza at wal-mart, with chicken, provolone, alfredo, ranch and cilantro, and we are hooked on adding more ranch, chopped romas, avacodo, feta stuffed olives, spinach, and shaved parmesan on top..... mmm. A weekly treat at our house now. Not sure which food group it belongs to....

Reading down even further after posting, I think I am with Uncle Bob in the multiculturalism club.
